History Behind Game Boy Purchase
What lies below is a listing of my Game Boy collection along with some history behind the system's purchase. One thing to keep in mind is that these are all the games I currently own. I've actually had other games throughout the years. But I got rid of some of them for whatever reason. Please also note that all of the games listed below are actual cartridges. I am neither into getting emulators for the classics nor am I into pirating the latest games.
When compared to many other platformers, Super Mario Land doesn't live up to their standards. But the game always will hold a special place with many gamers. That's because it was the first game we played on the first portable system we ever played. Super Mario Land is a little simple and strays from the Mario universe, but it introduced us to the Game Boy world.
R.C. Pro-Am is a favorite of many NES gamers out there, including me. This sequel was released on Game Boy, but it doesn't miss a beat. It recreates the same gameplay and same feeling as the original in near perfect fashion on the small screen. What makes it that much better, though, is when you link up with another human player. A truly wonderful link-up game.
Boxxle has to be one of my favorite puzzle games ever. It's not a matter of eye-hand coordination. It's not a matter of beating the clock. It requires analytical thinking and foresight. The goal of the game is to move each crate to a designated area (signified by the dot). But you only can move one crate at a time and many narrow passages exist. It's addicting!
